I find that the better Lapsang Souchongs almost all tend to be extremely mellow, with very little bitterness. They're also all low in caffeine because souchongs are made from large, mature leaves. If you want a stronger black tea character, you might want to look at a blend (like Russian caravan) or blend some yourself.
